the dock

after weeks of swimming lessons at the lake

Caroline has been working hard

to do one thing

swim to the dock.


she was so excited

her instructor swam beside her and talked to her the whole way


here she is on the dock…she couldn’t stop waving and smiling!!


they spent a few minutes jumping off and a lesson on how to dive in.


Cooper cried of course….having a hard time understanding why caroline gets to swim to the dock and he can’t….its hard being the youngest.


i have to tell you…watching her swim out there was the longest 5 minutes…and i think it was the suntan lotion in my eyes…but there were a few happy tears on my part….so proud.

i will never get enough of this proud feeling….and i love seeing her proud of herself….so cool!


right after her swim…she gets a hug from her best swimming buddy.

So glad we found each other's blogs. I have enjoyed reading your latest posts. The guest room looks amazing and that birthday cake is adorable! Your children are so precious. I am excited to see more home renovations. We are looking to move (after our house sells) to an older home and I need all the inspiration I can get. Those pictures of the rain drops were amazing. Thanks for sharing.
